Hotel Evil – OUT NOW!

It is rumoured the halls of the Piedmont Hotel have been filled with ghosts for years. It’s what led renowned horror director, Jason Horn, to film his latest movie there.

But Hotel Evil is more than a movie. Within these pages are the documented stories of the 13 cast and crew members and the horrors they suffered within those walls.

Dare you peer into the windows and pass through the doors into the Piedmont Hotel? Let your curiosity be your guide and book your reservation.

Welcome to Hotel Evil… enjoy your stay.

I am utterly thrilled to be one of the contributing authors of this project. Writing the opening chapter, which follows actress Marissa Caufield as she joins her fellow cast and crew members at the Piedmont Hotel, was an absolute blast. It was really good to get into the psyche of my good friend Marissa, discovering what made her tic, teasing out her fears to drive the story forward and lay the foundations for the other writers to continue their characters’ journies.

  • Anthony Sanderson – Kayla Krantz
  • Bridget Daniels – Dee Caples

Under the Covers Book Reviews – Coven

Big thank you again to Under The Covers Book Reviews. So good to get reviews like this.

Here’s an extract:

Oh, Mark. Your stories never let me down.

Coven has thirteen diverse dark fantasy and horror stories, each one very different from the last. There are witches, aliens, zombies, demons, werewolves, and even a creepy-ass jungle bug. I never knew what was coming next and it was so much fun! Each story felt like it’s own little gift, especially for me.

Coven: A historical look at a coven (in this case, a family) of witches. This was one of my favorite stories in the anthology, as it was entirely fleshed out and was an interesting take on these Pagan characters. No tired tropes here!

Silent Scream: This story made me tense in the very best way. As a parent, it really resonated. Such a nightmare scenario, and everything was tied beautifully together. Another favorite.

Bugs: Oh my Goddess, this made my skin crawl. So gross, so disturbing, and so AWESOME! The moral of this story was a highlight for me too.

The Girl With the Crooked Back: I’m not going to lie, despite the epic deaths and gore…this story ultimately made me sad. I love how much emotional depth Mark can bring to a classic horror story.

Doing Time: As I was reading this, I was fascinated trying to figure out where Mark was going with this story. When the ending was revealed, I was shocked! Great misdirection here.

If you love short horror stories (and who doesn’t?), I highly recommend Coven: 13 Dark Fantasy & Horror Stories. It’s every bit as good as his previous anthology, The Heartbreaker: 13 Dark Fantasy & Horror Stories.”

The full review can be found on Facebook, Goodreads and Amazon.

The book is free to read on Kindle Unlimited and available to purchase on Amazon: UK and US.

Britannic Comic is coming… soonish!

Grant Springford is a talented writer and artist. While learning new skills on photoshop I wanted to pay tribute him and his work.

Grant provided the silhouette illustrations for my #13darkfantasyandhorrorstories book stories. He has also leant me his skills as an editor.

I took this photo on a trip we made to #timessquarenyc in 2016. I wanted the opportunity to decorate its billboards and bring a little of his upcoming #britanniccomic to our friends in the states.

You can find more of his work on Instagram: @gspringford.
